Poll: More than half of Americans have unfavorable view of Islam

Poll: More than half of Americans have unfavorable view of Islam
It is not surprising that Jaweed Kaleem and the Huffington Post would assume that this unfavorable view stems from ignorance of Islam, or from the poll respondents’ not knowing a Muslim personally. No doubt this will be spun as an example of the success and influence of the nefarious (and fictional) “Islamophobia industry,” which supposedly […]

Is the tide turning against President Obama's purported nuclear weapons deal with Iran? One sign that the answer is yes is the devastating opinion article in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal by former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Shultz.

The architect of Richard Nixon's opening to China and the partner of Ronald Reagan in his negotiations with the Soviet Union are diplomatic in their criticisms. They pay passing tribute to their successor John Kerry's "persistence, patience and ingenuity." But they have many disturbing questions -- I count 16 question marks in the article -- about the deal.

Certainly it falls far short of what Obama himself cited as minimum requirements as recently as December 2013. The Fordow underground facility will not be eliminated; the heavy water Arak reactor won't be closed down; and Iran will be allowed thousands of centrifuges unnecessary for any peaceful nuclear power program.

American negotiators did obtain a few concessions. Enrichment will be confined to one facility, and within certain limits, the enriched stockpile will be reduced. But are even those parts of the deal enforceable?

There also remain questions of just what was agreed on. The Obama administration's "key parameters" statement says that Iran needs to meet benchmarks before sanctions are lifted. The Iranians put out a paper saying that sanctions will end immediately.
It had been a long time coming. Because of the Obama administration's audacity to define the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood Army facility in Texas as "workplace violence" instead of terrorism, the victims and survivors did not receive the Purple Hearts they deserved. Until today.
Today the military awarded the victims and survivors of the 2009 Fort Hood attack with Purple Hearts and other medals, after a more than five-year-long bureaucratic struggle over whether the awards were deserved.
Police Sgt. Kimberly Munley, who helped thwart the attack, along with murdered civilian Michael Cahill, were also honored with Defense of Freedom Medals.

For those who don't remember the bloody episode, Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on soldiers at Fort Hood in November of 2009, killing 13 people and injuring another 32. One of the murdered victims was pregnant.

When committing his heinous act, Hasan reportedly screamed, "Allahu Akbar!" ("God is great.") Afterward in court, he also declared he was defending the Taliban. Yet, despite his proud announcement, the military decided to classify this Al Qaeda-inspired attack as mere "workplace violence." This meant that Fort Hood victims could not receive their Purple Hearts.

These brave victims are finally being recognized - five years too late. Yet, some think these victims deserve much more than medals. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), for example, has demanded that the Pentagon provide them with financial benefits. He said as much on "Fox and Friends" on the Fox News Channel Friday morning. (See video of Ted Cruz here...
“It is outrageous and indefensible. One of the reasons we fought so hard to pass the legislation to require the purple hearts to be awarded is precisely so that these soldiers get the benefits they deserve. I intend to reach out to the Secretary of Defense personally. Enough games! Five years is far too long. We need to acknowledge the heroism of these soldiers.”
I couldn't agree more. These soldiers have an absolute right to the Defense Department benefits. Yet, based on the government's track record, they may be waiting another five years.
Indefensible, indeed.
